My research shows no link to prednisone and a false positive for hep C. Let me ask what did your results show: Anti-HCV positive or HCV RIBA positive?
all they told me was I tested positive for Hep C.....that was the extent of my phone call.....they have left me hanging, only learned what it is due to research on the web
Most of us were shocked and upset when first diagnosed.
If your worried about your kids having it, then rest assured that if you are hep C positive, there is a chance that they do have it, but many, many people here have raised kids, never knowing they had hep C, and their children didn't have it.
You need a doctor you trust. You have the right to copies of all your blood work.
If you are in doubt, get another test, or see another doctor.
When I was diagnosed, I was upset & worried my family didn't have it. The doc assured me my wife didn't have it, kids didn't have, but get my wife get a C check. She hasn't gotten one yet but shall soon.
I was notified Memorial Day(almost the anniversary) weekend by phone by my PCP who I've know & joked with for years......I trust this person.....In fact last Tuesday was the first time I've seen him since the tx started.....he referred me to a hepatologist.....so I've put my trust in my new buds.....
